I am fine with that. A solid buy low kind of trade that could end up going either way for you but if Halladay returns to his old self then this is a steal.

Absolutely agree with the above. I'm not a believer in Matt Garza, and you've got the bats to replace Butler in that utility spot. Try to squeeze a bit more out of him, but its fine if you can't.

Help with mine:

You are more than capable of replacing Billy Butler...and Garza has been lackluster this year. I would capitalize on this deal. Hallday's owner is definitely panicking if he is willing to take those 2. Even with the injury I'd aim just a tad bit higher as a Halladay owner.
